Andre, Andrew Hickinbottom (3D)

Title: Andre
Name: Andrew Hickinbottom
Country: United Kingdom
Software: 3ds max, Photoshop, VRay

Personal work.

I am a big fan of Andrea Torrejón's hugely appealing and funny work. I love the design of her main character, which is based on herself, so i made a 3D tribute for her.

I wanted to model something really stylised and unique. The head shape was quite challenging as the design only really makes sense in 2 dimensions.

You can see Andrea's work, and drawings of the character this is based on here:

I like it, but it took me a few seconds to figure out the lip-ring (thought it was a tongue at first). Maybe a metallic, or at least glossy shader on it would help. You're not using gloss anywhere else though, so ...

Maybe it's just me.

Lovely volumes though (never say this to a woman).

I know what you mean. On Andrea's drawings, her lip ring is drawn simply as a line, so at least its a bit more readable here. I wanted everything to look basic and simple, so i stayed away from any kind of specularity or texture. If i made one bit glossy, then i'd have to give the glasses proper reflections etc, and then it ends up looking too 3D.
Its so easy to let the computer make it all spiffy and realistic with Vray shaders and reflections and whatnot - i tried to scale it all back and make it super basic.

Very charming work. Definitely sufficiently cartoony and fully of life.
